Auteur Labels: Les Disques du Crepuscule

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Another in LTM's series of releases acting as single-disc spotlights of labels regularly revisited in their reissue campaigns, Auteur Labels: Les Disques de Crepuscule is the latest compilation about a label well-known for them over its initial existence, something that the 21-song collection readily conveys. Aside from a late ringer with the inclusion of the Devine and Statton cover of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle," the collection looks at the first few years of the label's existence, starting almost as an art project and multi-country organization before settling into a more focused outfit by 1985.

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Another in LTM's series of releases acting as single-disc spotlights of labels regularly revisited in their reissue campaigns, Auteur Labels: Les Disques de Crepuscule is the latest compilation about a label well-known for them over its initial existence, something that the 21-song collection readily conveys. Aside from a late ringer with the inclusion of the Devine and Statton cover of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle," the collection looks at the first few years of the label's existence, starting almost as an art project and multi-country organization before settling into a more focused outfit by 1985. The sense that the label was less interested in conventional music as such and more into something between multimedia-in-audio-format and mysterious soundtrack efforts takes hold early on, with songs like Michael Nyman's brief "Mozart," the first full single released by the label, and Thick Pigeon's elegantly strange, very Laurie Anderson-like effort "Subway," suggesting spare, decidedly non-rock & roll experiences. Meanwhile, as with the other compilations in the series, part of the interest lies in hearing songs by acts not otherwise given the full CD LTM treatment -- thus the stern, demi-goth pronouncing of Repetition's "A Still Reflex" and the equally moody growl and chime of Isolation Ward's "Lamina Christus" -- as much as it lies in hearing more familiar acts like Tuxedomoon's Eastern European celebration/pisstake "Ninotchka" and Antena's stellar indie pop goes bossa nova "Camino del Sol." Frank Brinkhuis' liner notes help to untangle the understandable confusion between Crepuscule, Factory, and Factory Benelux while noting the many early highlights and sometime misfires of the label's early days, including a slew of memorable package tours and even a collaborative fashion project done with the Danaque house.
